This FREE Livestream concert celebrates the wonders in our physical world: the earth, sky, water, humanity, wildlife and more.

Music is an international language, and “On The Village Green” helps break down borders and barriers, calling for world peace and demonstrating our environment’s fragility.

The repertoire is wide-ranging, from Mozart to Jenkins to Cozens, scintillatingly performed by the Burlington New Millennium Orchestra. This one-hour concert under Maestro Charles Cozens’ direction includes an additional short pre-concert talk on why this music was written and what it stands for in our ever-changing world.

The Burlington New Millennium Orchestra is grateful for the support we received from those that planned to join us for our “On The Village Green” Livestream concert in April from the Burlington Performing Arts Centre. As you are aware, we had to postpone our show due to the Ontario government lockdown restrictions.

The good news is that anticipating some lessening of restrictions, BNMO has now booked Livestream concerts for June and July 2021!

In addition to the rescheduled “On The Village Green” concert, we are looking forward to transporting you back to memories of the Big Band era. We will be providing the exact details of the events very soon.

Thanks for your patience, and we do look forward to being with you again!

Charles Cozens: Arranger, Composer, and Orchestrator

The Burlington New Millennium Orchestra was the creation of acclaimed arranger, conductor and producer, Maestro Charles Cozens.

The orchestra evolved over 25 years ago from a commission that Charles received to create and record, fresh and innovative orchestral arrangements of Canadian hit pop songs. The concept proved to be successful in the studio but it has taken till now to replicate the sound live on stage and create new and compelling orchestral landscapes.

Established in 2016, Burlington New Millennium Orchestra is now at the forefront of digital music technology and has helped to redefine the traditional concept of an orchestra.
